Robert Downey Jr. Living the (Jewish) Life?

Notice anything striking about this photo of Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr?

Yes, he has blue hair, but I was referring to the large “chai” (Hebrew for ‘alive’ around his neck).

And what’s the connection? Downey Jr had a Jewish father, he got married to his Jewish wife in a Jewish wedding ceremony, and gave his daughter a Hebrew name. So I am guessing this is him displaying some Jewish pride.

I wonder if this photo will trigger his Avengers co-star Mark Ruffalo.
